New documentary follows local runner Alice Parker
Local filmmaker Sue Carpenter has just completed a short documentary film, Alice and Nana, shot partly in Brockwell Park and Dulwich Park. It follows local runner Alice Parker, a teacher at Dulwich College, as she trains for the longest run of her life, the 106km ultramarathon around the Isle of Wight, on 30th April, in aid of Mind the mental health charity. She is undertaking this gruelling challenge in memory of her cousin Nana, who died tragically in a fire last year after suffering from schizophrenia for years. Capturing the beauty of our local green spaces, the film shows how running helps maintain a healthy mind as well as body.
The full 8.45 minute film will be shown at film festivals, but you can see the 5 minute version here.
